I’m not sure who “FunkyGibbon69″ is, but his or her trolling of Isabel Fay’s YouTube Channel has inspired her to greater artistic glory.
If you’ve spent any amount of time on the Internet, you know that message boards can serve either as tools of intelligent discourse about a subject of common interest or as a gathering place for foul mouthed ass hats, who view the anonymity of the Web as license to spew hate. Usually spelled poorly at that. In some situations, trolling has gotten so bad that, as Tech New Daily recently pointed out, on June 8 “British woman Nicola Brookes won a landmark case in the country’s High Court. It requires Facebook to reveal the identities of members who were cyber bullying her online, even issuing death threats, because she posted in support of a particular musical competitor on “The X Factor” TV show”, according to The Daily Mail UK. While it’s impossible to completely police the Internet, one does wonder what kind of effect this will have on social media and message forum sites long term.
Meanwhile, Isabel Fay has chosen to go the humorous, rather than litigious route with her trolls.
